I think this might be the apt forum for these islands as they are Human Made !





Those islands are:

Palm Jumeirah and The World Islands, located in Dubai, UAE.

Think of it as our oil&gas money being put to work!!!

I don't think these artificial islands have been a financial success no doubt they will be washed away before to long.

I'm envious! Love old gear - but in all honesty I have no room for in in my minute flat. Have to settle for small scientific toys (Newton's Cradle, Crooke's  Light-mill, prism, "Galileo"  thermometer etc.) Always on look-out for old ones, nearly bought an old barograph  but decided the price was not right for me - tried to part exchange it for some old cameras but  . . .
